Julia Robinson in Eeerie Pageantry at City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand

Julia Robinson is currently showing at City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand, alongside the late Don Driver in the exhibition ‘Eerie Pageantry’.

‘Eerie Pageantry’ is a cornucopia of folk horror and art played out through a ritualistic meeting of made and modified materials, textures, colours, tools, bodies and nightmares. Julia Robinson and Don Driver's assemblages and sculptures form an elaborate ceremonial procession in the gallery space—an eerie pageantry of the Antipodean Gothic.

‘Eerie Pageantry’ is curated by Aaron Lister and Dr Chelsea Nichols as part of their project Curator of Screams which explores connections between contemporary art and horror films.

‘Eerie Pageantry’ is on display at City Gallery Wellington (Te Whare Toi), New Zealand, from 28 October to 18 February 2024.

Paul Yore's major survey exhibition at ACCA

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Paul Yore’s major survey exhibition ‘WORD MADE FLESH’ at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne.

Presented as part of ACCA’s Contemporary Australian Solo Series, ‘Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH’, curated by Max Delany, is a comprehensive survey encompassing the full scope of Yore’s work—appliques, quilts, tapestry and needlework, banners and pendants, collage and assemblage, and largescale narrative and history paintings, as well as a major monographic publication. The exhibition will be constructed maximally as a gesamtkunstwerk, presenting work over the past fifteen years, alongside a major new room-scaled sculptural installation to be developed for the exhibition.

‘Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH’ will be presented at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art from 24 September –20 November 2022.
